Hetfield found a classified ad by drummer Lars Ulrich in a local newspaper in Los Angeles, The Recycler. They gathered in 1981 to form a heavy metal band ‘Metallica’. Guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist Cliff Burton joined them. Mustaine’s unpredictable behavior and drinking caused some problems in the early years, so in 1983 he was replaced by lead guitarist Kirk Hammett. The band moved from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Initially, the group had to face the rejection of major record companies because their voice was strong, so their manager decided to launch their own record company. Their first album, “Kill’Em All” (1983), reflects the British metal style of the early 1980s. At the same time, the team experienced tensions, especially between the two determined co-founders of the band, Hetfield and Ulrich. Hetfield is also different from Jason Newsted, which eventually led to an outburst of anger and a drinking frenzy. Therefore, in 2002, Hetfield entered the rehabilitation center due to drinking habits and left the band for 7 months.
